IN MEMORY OF 

REV. WILLIAM THOMAS PICARD 

ORDAINED DEACON MAY 11. 1887 

Coming into the Ministry late in life, he remained a Deacon ta 
the end of his earthly pilgrimage, serving in that office more than 
thirty years. 

Supporting himself and his family by the pursuit of his secular 
business, he served the Church whenever and wherever he could, 
and without financial renumeration. To him this was a labor of 
love. 

Modest, humble, and pious, his life was an inspiration and bene- 
diction to the community in which he lived. 

He finished his work in quietness and confidence and has entered 
into his reward. 



IN MEMORY OF 

REV. JOHN WILLIAM PERRY 

ORDAINED PRIEST APRIL 7, 1887 

The oldest and one of the most distinguished of the colored clergy 
in the Diocese, St. Luke's. Parish, Tarboro, is a lasting monument 
fto his faithful and devoted work for God and His Church. In this, 
one Parish, he spent his entire ministry of thirty-seven years. His 
life was an open book, and by it he commanded the esteem of the 
entire community in which he lived. 

The splendid Parochial School which he established in Tarboro 
was of untold blessing to his race and was the means of leading 
many of them to God and His Church. 

As an evidence of his abiding love for the Church, he left the 
School which he built by his own efforts, and another lot besides, 
to the Diocese of North Carolina. He had but little of this world's 
goods, but of that little he gave to the Church generously and 
gladly, and in so doing set a good example to others to whom God 
has entrusted much in the way of earthly possessions. 

May he rest in peace, and may light perpetual shine upon him.

in the town of Warrenton, county of Warren, lying on Front and 
Franklin streets, and containing one-eighth of an acre; consideration 
$700, dated September 2, 1910, and registered in Book 81, page 246, in 
the office of the Register of Deeds for Warren County. 

On the 15th day of June, in accordance with the instructions of the 
Diocesan Convention of the year 1917, executed a deed whereby they 
did convey to the heirs of Peterson Thorp the land devised to the 
Diocese by the late Miss Lucy P. Thorp of Granville County, for the 
consideration of $1,000, and for the further consideration of the per- 
formance by said grantees, their heirs and assigns, of all the trusts 
created by the said devise of Miss Lucy P. Thorp, as far as said 
trusts relate to the Thorp family graveyard, with its graves and 
enclosure. 

On the same day the Trustees executed to the American Church 
Building Fund Commission a mortgage upon the property of All 
Saints' Mission, Warrenton, to secure a grant of $900 for the com- 
pletion of the church building of said Mission. 

On the same day, at the request of the Priest in charge of St. 
Mary's Church, Orange County, and also in accordance with the 
written judgment of the Rector and Vestry of St. Matthew's Church, 
Hillsboro, of which St. Mary's has long been in effect a Parochial 
Mission, the Trustees of the Diocese executed to the Board of Educa- 
tion of Orange County a deed for two (2) acres (being a part of the 
9i^-acre tract upon which St. Mary's Church is situated), as a loca- 
tion for a public schoolhouse; this land to be reconveyed to the said 
Trustees if, at any time, it should cease to be used for the said pur- 
pose. The deed was filed August 25, 1917. 

November 20, 1917, the Trustees sold and conveyed by a deed under 
their hands and seals to Virgil N. Bond, 4.39 acres of the lands held 
by the Trustees for St. Anna's Mission, near the town of Littleton, 
Halifax County, for the consideration of $325. The Bishop of the 
Diocese had paid on the original purchase money of this tract the 
sum of $309.15, as will appear by the account printed after the 
Bishop's Address to the Diocesan Convention of 1910. This money 
was advanced with the understanding that it should be repaid when 
an advantageous sale could be made of part of the tract. The $325 
proceeds of this sale is received by the Bishop in full satisfaction of 
the $309.15 of the amount advanced by him. with interest thereon.

improved land held for said church, for $250, which sum is to be 
invested for the benefit of said church.

Salisbury, N. C. 

Kev. Sidney S. Bost read the report of the Finance Com- 
mittee, as follows : 

REPORT OF THE FIXAXCE COMMITTEE 

TTie Committee on Finance reports that the books of the Treasurer 
of the Diocese have been properly audited by a certified public ac- 
countant, Maj. J. J. Bernard, who reports as follows: 

"I do hereby certify that I have audited the books and 
vouchers of Col. Charles E. Johnson. Treasurer of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina, for the period beginning April 1, 
1917, and the foregoing statement [meaning the Treasurer's 
printed report which has been distributed to the Conven- 
tion] is a true exhibit of the operations of that period as 
shown by said books and vouchers." 

Your committee asked the Secretary if the parishes and missions 
had complied with the new Canon which requires that "All accounts 
of $3,000 or over shall be audited annually by a certified public 
accountant: Provided, hoicever, if a certified public accountant is 
not available, the audit may be made by an accountant bookkeeper 
who is in no way connected with the subject-matter of the account." 
The Secretary replied that one parish in the Diocese had fully com- 
plied with the law, but in nearly all cases the report was signed 
"Treasurer" or "Accounting Warden." This committee urges upon 
the parishes the necessity of obeying the new law. It will help the 
finances and do the soul good. 

(Signed) S. S. Bost, Chairman. 



30 JOURXAL OF PeOCEEDIXGS 

Col. Charles E. Johnson read the report of the Treasurer 
of the Diocese. (See Appendix '^C") At the close of his 
report, Mr. Johnson tendered his resignation as Treasurer 
after a continuous service of thirtj-four years. 

Rev. Sidney S. Bost offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted by a rising vote : 

Whereas the Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina has 
heard with regret the decision of its Treasurer, Col. Charles E. John- 
son, that after thirty-four years of service in the Diocese he must 
now resign from this oflfice; and 

Whereas the Convention has uniformly elected him practically 
without contest or opposition throughout these thirty-four years, and 
would, doubtless, do so again were not his decision unalterable: 
Therefore, be it 

Resolved, (1) That in the enforced acceptance of this resignation 
this Convention pays tribute to one who has faithfully and loyally 
served the Church through more than a third of a century. 

Resolved, (2) That this Convention hereby records its deep sense 
of gratitude for and appreciation of the long and faithful service 
rendered, and believes that the consciousness of work efficiently dis- 
charged and duty well done will reward him more than these words 
of affectionate commendation. 

Resolved, (8) That the Secretary of the Convention be requested 
to convey to Colonel Johnson an attested copy of these resolutions. 

Bishop Cheshire presented the report of the Trustees of St. 
Mary's School, which was received and referred to the follow-

C. Drewry. There is no suggestion in the will as to the use to be 
made of the money, and it is now in bank awaiting the disposition 
of the Trustees. K. P. Battle, Jr., Treasurer. 

Considering the unusual weather conditions prevailing during De- 
cember and January, and the increase in all items of expense, the 
past year has been a good one. 

A few more students could have been accommodated, but with a 
boarding enrollment of 174, an average of 156 has been maintained 
throughout the year. 

There have been 95 day pupils, with an average attendance of 82, 
and there are 29 teachers. 

The great increase in the price of all commodities, the rise in 
wages and the scarcity of labor; the shortage and high price of fuel 
and the severity of the weather, making it necessary on account of 
frozen water pipes to keep the school closed for an extra week after 
the Christmas holidays, are circumstances which have combined to 
make it difficult to keep the expenses within the limit of the school's 
income in spite of the $50 emergency fee charged the boarding 
pupils. 



32 JouKXAL OF Proceedings 

We have made a better showing by several thousands than we an- 
ticipated. 

The deficit may reach $2,500; it is hoped it may be considerably 
less. 

It is proposed to add $25 more to the fees for boarding students 
for the coming session, making the rates $400. This is in line with 
other schools of the class, and with the necessities of the times, and 
it leaves the rates at St. Mary's still much lower than at other 
schools of the same rank. 

The total net income of the school for the present session will be 
approximately $65,000. 

Your Trustees feel that the stringency of the times makes more 
necessary than ever the raising of the $250,000 endowment fund, so 
that the school, without further increase in the fees, may be kept up 
to its present high standard. 

The times and circumstances are not favorable for raising such a 
sum, but in spite of these, Mr. Osborne has great reason to feel en- 
couraged, and with the earnest cooperation of the people of the Caro- 
linas, we hope it may not be long before we have the full sum in 
hand. 

Credit should be given the boarding pupils of the school for the 
part they have taken in the work of conservation made necessary 
during the last year. 

They have gladly denied themselves dainties, giving up candies 
and sugar; they have made a most creditable addition to the Red 
Cross work and have voluntarily given their leisure hours to work 
in the war garden and on the school grounds. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

penditures or evidences of investments were submitted with the

contained, your Committee respectfully suggests that the Special

Company and held subject to the order of the Trustees of the Dio- 
cese under the Laws and Canons of the Church.

him from all further liability.

and securities this fund and make report of the same in the usual

The Special Committee appointed to consider the resolutions in

special committee of advice, appointed by the Bishop, is satisfactory. 

(2) We heartly concur with the second resolution, and would ask 
that it be sent to the Finance Committee.

REPOET OF COMMITTEE OX MEMORIAL OF REVS. WILLIAM 
THOMAS PICAED AXD JOHX WILLIAM PERRY 

As a rule, it may be safely said, the men in the larger centers of 
population who do great things for God and their fellowmen receive 
their just meed of praise and recognition. But not infrequently 
great and good men who labor in small and obscure communities 
receive but little notice from the world at large. We have an ex- 
emplification of this fact in the lives and labors of the Rev. William 
Thomas Picard and the Rev. John William Perry. 

Mr. Picard. coming into the ministry late in life, remained a Dea- 
con to the end of his earthly pilgrimage, serving in that office for 
more than thirty years. Supporting himself and his family by the 
pursuit of his secular business, he served the Church whenever and 
wherever he could, and without financial remuneration. To him 
this was a labor of love. Modest, humble, and pious, his life was 
an inspiration and benediction to the community in which he lived. 
He finished his work in quietness and in confidence, and has 
entered; into his reward. 

The Rev. John William Perry was the oldest and, in some respects, 
the most distinguished of our colored clergy. St. Luke's Parish, Tar- 
boro. is a lasting monument to him and his faithful, devoted work 
for God and His Church. In this one parish he spent his entire min- 
istry of thirty-seven years. His life was an open book; and by that 
life he commanded the confidence and personal esteem of his entire 
community, irrespective of race. 



38 Journal of Proceedings 

The splendid parochial school which he established in Tarboro was 
of untold blessing to the colored people of the town and surrounding 
country, and was the means, under God, of leading many of them 
into the communion and fellowship of the Church which he loved 
and served. As an evidence of his abiding love for the Church, 
which ought to be put on record, he left the schoolhouse. which he 
built by his own personal efforts, and another lot besides, to the 
Diocese of North Carolina. He had but little of this world's goods, 
but of that little he gave to the Church generously and gladly. And 
in so doing he has set a good example to some of our white brethren 
to whom God has entrusted much in the way of earthly possessions. 
We thank God for the life and labors of these dear brethren. 
May they rest in peace, and may light perpetual shine upon them.

School, as follows : 

report of ST. Augustine's school 

During the past school year there have been 474 students enrolled 
in all our departments. They have paid over $10,000 toward their 
board and tuition. 

The boarding department has been especially full, and we were 
quite cramped for room in which to quarter our young men. 

A number of our graduates and students have entered the Army 
and Navy, and more expect to be drafted. 

During the year the school has taken its part in community ef- 
forts to conserve food, and to promote the sale of Thrift Stamps and 
Liberty Bonds, and also to foster home gardens. 

The school will celebrate its Fiftieth Anniversary in connection 
with its Commencement exercises, which will be held from the 2'6th 
to the 29th of this month. Special features of the celebration will 
be a pageant, showing the growth and present status of the school, 
to be held on the afternoon of the 28th, and a mass meeting in the 
Raleigh Auditorium on the evening of the 29th. at which Governor 
Bickett will preside. One of the speakers at this meeting will be 
Principal Robert R. Moton, the successor of Dr. Booker T. Washing- 
ton, of Tuskegee Institute. 

About $25,000 have been given or pledged for our Anniversary 
Fund of $100,000, which is being raised for much needed buildings 
and equipment, as well as for endowment. The Rev. A. B. Hunter is 
Treasurer of this fund. Contributions towards it may be sent to 
him. Will not the friends of the school give generously to the fund 
at a time when help is so needed and would be so appropriate?

Rev. Thaddeus A. Cheatham offered the following resolu- 
tion, which was adopted : 

Whereas there seems to be a considerable lack of understanding 
concerning the administration of the Church Pension Fund; and 
whereas the efficiency and usefulness of the Pension Fund Commis- 
sion is necessarily retarded by a lack of thorough understanding 
and sympathy: 

Resolved, That this Convention request the Diocesan Committee 
to distribute to the parishes of the Diocese the book of rules govern- 
ing the operations of the Church Pension Fund.

REPORT No. 1 

Your Committee on Canons respectfully beg leave to report that 
since last Convention one member of the Committee has been called 
from the Church Militant into the rest of the Paradise of God. Mr. 
H. A. London was for so many years a member of this Convention, 
and his services to the Convention and to the Church at large so 
well known that it is needless for this Committee to attempt to 
enumerate or eulogize them. But we cannot forbear giving expres- 
sion to our high appreciation of his sterling character and his many 
noble qualities of mind and heart. 

Your Committee feels that not only has the Church lost a noble 
son, but that each member of the Committee has lost a dear personal

friend. May he rest in peace, and may light perpetual shine upon 
him. 

In regard to the Canonical matters referred to us by the last Con- 
vention, we report as follows: 

1. An amendment to Article III, Section 2, of the Constitution was 
passed and referred to this Convention for final action. We offer 
the following resolution: 

Resolved. That Article III, Section 2. of the Constitution be 
amended by omitting in the second line the words "or Suffragan 
Bishop, if there be one." 

2. On page 48 of the Journal of 1917 there is a record instructing 
the Committee on Canons to bring in an amendment restoring Rule 
of Order XVII, as proposed in a resolution offered by Rev. J, E. 
Ingle. In accordance with the instruction of the Convention, we 
offer the following resolution: 

Resolved. That Rule of Order No. XVII be rescinded and that the 
following be adopted instead thereof: 

XVII. Nominations viva voce for all offices not otherwise provided 
for shall be in order immediately after the appointment of hours for 
Convention on the afternoon of the first day of the session, but writ- 
ten nominations also, signed with the name of the proposer, may be 
handed to the Secretary. All names of persons so nominated for 
members of the Standing Committees. Deputies and Supplemental 
Deputies to the General Convention, or Delegates and Alternate 
Delegates to the Provincial Synod, shall be reported to the Conven- 
tion by the Secretary on the afternoon of the second day's session in 
the form of a ticket on which they shall be printed in alphabetical 
order. After each list of nominations there shall be left as many 
blank spaces as there are persons to be elected. These blanks may 
be used by any voter. The voter shall mark an X opposite the name 
of each person for whom he votes. On the first ballot these tickets 
only shall be used, and also in all subsequent ballots except when 
otherwise ordered by the Convention. On the back of the ticket 
shall be printed the names of the present members of the Committee, 
Deputation, or Delegation to be elected. If under any particular 
head more names are marked than there are places to be filled under 
that head, that part of such ticket shall not be counted, but such 
mistakes shall not invalidate the vote under the other heads on that 
ticket. If there is a failure to elect all the persons necessary on the 
first ballot, another ballot may be taken in the same manner. After 
the Deputies to the General Convention, or Delegates to the Pro- 
vincial Synod, have been elected, the Alternates shall be elected by 
ballot from those already nominated for Deputies or Delegates, and 
from such other names as may be proposed, using the printed ballot 
if convenient. The collection of ballots shall be called for by the 
presiding officer at such times as he may see fit, but the business of 
the Convention shall proceed while the ballots are being made out. 
and while they are being counted by the tellers. The report of the 
tellers shall be in order at any time when ready. 
Respectfully submitted,

The only things which seem worth while at the present time are 
patriotic and missionary work, and the two words which really stir 
the heart are God and Our Country. We have all been giving our

best hours of our busy days to the work of the Red Cross. Now, the

The Committee notes, however, that while these authorities ex- 
press satisfaction with the present situation, they manifest some 
anxiety that the interest and generosity now so general may possibly 
abate. Offerings given with more or less irregularity and prompted 
by the stimulus of present interest are not the most satisfactory 
reliance for the support of an institution. 

The Committee, who make report for the Board of Managers, make 
an earnest plea, first, that the resolution of the Convention asking 
for monthly contributions from the Sunday Schools be made more 
universal; and. second, that an Orphanage Guild be formed in every 
congregation. Certainly some plan ought to be effected by which 
gifts for the support of the Orphanage should be regular and 
adequate. 

Your special Committee believes that it would be wise to have one 
man selected in every Congregation in the Diocese to be an Orphan- 
age Agent to see that there is sent regularly, month by month, a 
contribution for the Orphanage. 

The institution has still the same needs as were made known last 
year: (1) A new barn; (2) repairs and improvements on Bronson 
Hall; (3) a cottage especially suited for the care of children under 
four years old. 

These needs of an institution doing so great, so necessary, and so 
sacred a work ought not to be allowed to go unheeded from year to 
year, but prompt and energetic measures taken to supply them.

3 p. 111. The Convention was called to order by the Bishop 
and the presence of the Rt. Rev. Albion W. Knight, D.D., 
Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Sonth, was noted, 
and he was asked to have a seat with the President. 

Rev. Sidney S. Bost read the report of the Finance Com- 
mittee, which was adopted as follows : 

EEPORT OF THE COMMITTEE Ox'fIXAXCE 

The Committee on Finance, to whom was referred the resolution 
with reference to the salary of the Suffragan Bishop, begs leave to 
report as follows: 

Resolved, That the salary of the Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese 
be fixed at two thousand dollars ($2,000) per annum, and that he be 
allowed three hundred dollars ($300) per annum for traveling ex- 
penses, which sums, respectively, shall be made up of Diocesan 
funds appropriated for this purpose, and such sums as may be paid 
by other Dioceses which may be served by the Suffragan, and such 
funds as the Bishop may find necessary to appropriate for this pur- 
pose from funds in his hands for the colored work. 

Rev. Sidney S. Bost read the following resolntion, which 
was adopted: 

The Committee to which was referred certain resolutions concern- 
ing the status of Organized Parishes and Missions (see page 39, 
Journal 1916. and page 48 of Journal of 1917), respectfully recom- 
mend that no action be taken and that the Committee be discharged. 

The Bishop called the Convention to prayer, and, at its 
close, announced that nominations were in order for Suffra- 
gan Bishop. 

Rev. Henry Beard Delany, D.D., was nominated by Rev. 
J. K. Satterwhite and seconded by Mr. Charles H. Boyer, 



46 JouEXAL OF Proceedixgs 

Rev. J. E. King^ Mr. W. E. Erwin, Mr. Wiley J. Latham, 
and Dr. R. H. Lewis. 

Xo other nominations being made, the Bishop appointed 
the tellers, and the Convention proceeded to ballot. 

The tellers reported the result of the election as follows : 

Clerical votes — Rev. Henry B. Delany, 34; others, none. 
Parish votes — Rev. Henry B. Delany, 25; others, none. 

Rev. Henry B. Delany was declared elected Suffragan 
Bishop of the Diocese of Xorth Carolina, and the Secretary 
was instructed to notify the Council of South Carolina of the 
action of the Convention. 

The following certificate of election was then signed by the 
clerical and lay members present and entitled to a seat and 
vote in the Convention : 

We, whose names are hereunder written, fully sensible how im- 
portant it is that the Sacred Order and Office of Bishop should not 
be unworthily conferred, and firmly persuaded it is our duty to bear 
testimony on this solemn occasion without partiality or affection, do, 
in the presence of Almighty God. testify that the Reverend Henry 
Beard Delany, D.D., is not. so far as we are informed, justly liable 
to evil report, either for error in religion or for viciousness of life; 
and that we know of no impediment on account of which he ought 
not to be ordained and consecrated to that Holy Office. We do, more- 
over, jointly and severally declare that we believe him to be of such 
efficiency in good learning, of such soundness in the faith, and of 
such virtuous and pure manners and godly conversation, that he is 
apt and meet to exercise the office of a Bishop to the honor of God 
and the edifying of His Church, and to be a wholesome example to 
the Flock of Christ.

48 JouRXAL OF Proceedixgs 

Tlie Rev. Edwin A. Osborne being temporarily in the 
chair, Mr. H. C. Bourne offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted by a rising vote : 

The undersigned Committee, duly appointed by the Vestry of Cal- 
vary Parish at a special call meeting held in Tarboro, N. C, on the 
13th day of May, 1918. to formulate and draw up a resolution re- 
questing andt petitioning the Convention of the Diocese of North 
Carolina to select Calvary Church. Tarboro. N. C, as the place in 
which to hold the Twenty-fifth Anniversary Services of the conse- 
cration of Bishop Joseph Blount Cheshire on October 15, 1918: 

Now, therefore, this Committee, for and in behalf of the Vestry of 
Calvary Church Parish, say: 

That whereas Bishop Joseph Blount Cheshire was born and raised 
in Calvary Parish, was baptized in Calvary Church, was ordained to 
the Ministry in Calvary Church, and was consecrated to the Bish- 
opric in Calvary Church on the 15th day of October, 1893: 

And whereas, under these circumstances, it would be eminently 
fitting and proper that the celebration of the Twenty-fifth Anni- 
versary of the consecration of Bishop Cheshire be held in that 
church, which was built and hallowed by the good acts and deeds of 
his father; which is filled with consecrated and holy memories to 
our beloved Bishop; and which has given him to the Diocese of North 
Carolina, it would be manifestly appropriate that the representa- 
tives of the Diocese of North Carolina assemble in Calvary Church 
on October 15, 1918. and do honor and reverence to him who has so 
faithfully led and so earnestly and devoutly served the Diocese of 
North Carolina for twenty-five years. 

Therefore, we do request and petition, and most sincerely extend 
to this Convention here assembled an invitation to meet in Calvary 
Church on October 15th, next, to duly celebrate with Holy Service 
the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the consecration of our Bishop, 
Joseph Blount Cheshire. 

Respectfully submitted,

Diocese of ^orth Carolina, 1918 49 

Rev. A. Burtis Hunter, D.D., be appointed a Committee to arrange 
for a worthy and appropriate commemoration of the Twenty-fifth 
Anniversary of the consecration of our beloved Bishop. 

The Bishop resumed the chair, and Mr. Robert Hairston 
read the following resolution, which was adopted by rising 
vote : 

Whereas the records disclose that a high percentage of the young 
men of the Church in this Diocese have gone into the military service 
of the country; and 

Whereas we desire that they may know the attitude of this Con- 
vention in respect of their sacrifice and its opinion as to the ever- 
lasting righteousness of the cause for which they fight: Now, there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, That we stand solidly behind the President and this 
Nation in the avowed purpose to bring to a successful and victorious 
finish this world war, to the end that there shall be established a 
permanent and righteous peace in the earth. 

(Signed) Robert Hairston. 

The Rev. Walter J. Smith spoke of the work of the

ing report of the work of the University of the South. 

Rev. John L. Jackson introduced the following resolution, 
which was referred to the Committee on Canons: 

Resolved. That Article IX. Sec. 3, of the Constitution be amended 
as follows: At the end of the section add the words, ''Provided 
further, that any Parish may, by vote of a majority of the voters as 
at present qualified, permit all members of the Parish of the age of 
twenty-one years who shall have subscribed to the above declaration, 
to vote in parochial elections." 

Rev. A. Burtis Hunter, D.D., read the report of the Special 
Committee to which was referred the report of St. Mary's 
School, as follows : 

The Committee to whom was referred the report of the Trustees of 
St. Mary's School have given it careful consideration. There have 
been 174 boarding and 95 day students. The rise in the price of 
commodities and wages, the scarcity of fuel and labor, have made 
the school year a diflficult one. There may be a deficit of $2,500. It 
is proposed to add $25 to the charge of the board and tuition, thus 
making the school charge $400. This we believe to be only prudent.

50 JOURXAL OF PeOCEEDIXGS 

There is still great necessity for our people to engage earnestly in 
raising the $250,000 fund for endowment and other purposes, and we, 
hope that there will be no slackers. TTie Diocese has reason to con- 
gratulate the girls of the school on their patriotic self-sacrifice in 
food conservation, in Red Cross w'ork, and in their war garden, thus 
bearing their part in helping the Nation to win the war against a 

ruthless enemy.

THE ST. Mary's school fuxd 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph B. Cheshire, D.D., bishop of North Carolina. 

Right Reverend Father in God: — It is my pleasure to report to 
this Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina the result of the 
campaign for the $250,000 fund for St. Mary's School, so far as it has 
progressed in this Diocese. 

The canvass in the Diocese of North Carolina is not yet complete, 
but the results so far attained are an indication that we confidently 
expect this Diocese to subscribe the full amount expected from her as 
her proportionate part of the fund, namely, $75,000. It is impossible 
to give a perfectly accurate statement of the result to date, for some 
congregations have not yet made report of all they have done, but 
by counting all subscriptions in our hands and conservatively esti- 
mating subscriptions that have been made but not yet filed in our 
office, we can make the following report for the Diocese of North 
Carolina: 

We find in this Diocese 8,000 communicants of the Church. In 
thirty (30) congregations containing over 5,000 of these systematic 
canvassing has been done for the fund. Over 1,200 subscriptions 
have been made, including a few conditional promises, and the 
aggregate of these is over $50,000. Of course, some subscriptions 
have come from other Dioceses, but this report deals only with this 
Diocese. There still remain four (4) strong parishes and at least 
ten (10) small congregations where we expect to have organized 
canvassing. If these places do their part proportionately, this Dio- 
cese will complete its quota. This is greatly to be desired as an 
incentive to other Dioceses who, with North Carolina, own the 
school and are organizing for work. 



Diocese of ;N"ortii Carolina, 1918 51 

The most conspicuous feature of the canvass in this Diocese has 
been the large number of subscriptions. As yet we have received no 
large gifts, but a large percentage of those who have been asked to 
contribute have done so, cordially and willingly, according to their 
ability. We still hope that those who are able to give largely will 
give as God has prospered them. 

It is encouraging to note that the subscriptions made by this Dio- 
cese alone up to this time will more than cover St. Mary's Building 
Debt, which had come to be a real menace to the school. 

East Carolina and the District of Asheville^ after unavoidable de- 
lays, are now organized for work, and will begin to canvass and per- 
haps complete their work by the fall. 

For their emulation, those places in this Diocese that have not yet 
made a canvass for this fund would do well to consider the appended 
list of congregations, large and small, that have successfully raised 
their quota of this fund. The completion of our Diocesan share in 
this enterprise waits upon them. Respectfully, 

(Signed) Fraxcis M. Osborne, 

Special Representative of the 
Trustees of St. Mary's School.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX FIXAXCE 

Your Committee submits the following report: 

We have considered the assets and liabilities for the current year, 
and we believe that the finances of the Diocese are in a normal, 
healthy condition. We submit the following resolutions: 

(1) That the assessment for the Episcopal and Contingent Fund 
upon Parishes and Missions for the year ending December 31, 1918, 



Diocese of JSTokth Carolhsta, 1918 53 



be and is hereby made 13i^ per cent upon minister's salary and cur- 
rent expenses, the said I31/2 per cent to include the li^ per cent 
authorized by the Convention toward the salary and traveling ex- 
penses of the Suffragan Bishop. 

(2) That the Diocese appropriate $400, payable in quarterly in- 
stallments, for the support of the Carolina Churchman for the year 
1918, this 1400 to include the unpaid quarterly installment of thf3 
appropriation made by the Convention of 1917, which w^as due April 
1, 1918. 

(3) That the Treasurer be instructed to remit, on account of 
error, the sum of $33.74. charged against St. Martin's Church, Char- 
lotte; also that $61.60 which is shown as March 31, 1917, arrearages 
against All Saints', Concord, be remitted, and that the assessment 
for the current year be $50.80, the same as last year. Also that all 
arrearages against St. Michael's Church, Charlotte, for the year end- 
ing December 31, 1917, be remitted. 

(4) That those Parishes and Missions which have made payments 
in advance upon the Episcopal and Contingent Fund since January 1, 
and prior to the publishing of the schedule of assessments, shall be 
credited with such payments upon assessments for this current year. 

(5) That the Finance Committee be instructed to meet on or about 
January 1. 1919, and each year subsequently, and. with the Treas- 
urer's Annual Report before them, make out and cause to be pub- 
lished, a schedule of assessments for the ensuing year. 

(6) With reference to the resolution referred to us, Resolved, that 
the Treasurer be authorized to pay to the Treasurer of the Parish of 
the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, on the pension assessment of 
the Rector of said Parish, a sum not exceeding 71^ per cent on $600, 
the annual appropriation by the Convention toward Parish ex- 
penses: Provided, the said 7i^ per cent be paid out of any surplus 
of the fund for Church work at the State University which may be 
on hand after the $600 shall have been paid. 

Tlie Convention referred to this Committee a communication from 
the General Board of Religious Education. This communication 
asked that $120 be paid toward the work of the Board. Inasmuch 
as the Committee on Apportionments has already made, for this year, 
its apportionment for this cause, we ask to be discharged from 
further consideration of this matter. 

Your Committee expresses its gratification that fewer requests for 
reduction of assessments and remission of arrearages have been 
made at this Convention than at any time within our recollection. 

Respectfully submitted,

A. B. Hunter, D.D.,

54 JouEi^AL OF Peoceedixgs 

Rev. J. L. Jackson read tlie report of the Committee on 
Apportionments, as follows : 

The Committee on Apportionments met in the fall and apportioned 
the amounts needed for General Missions, University of North Caro- 
lina, University of the South, and combined works of Religious Edu- 
cation and Social Service. 

We apportioned each church 331/ per cent more for General Mis- 
sions than apportioned in 1917. Also apportioned each congregation 
paying as much as $200 for minister's salary and current expenses 
1% (one per cent) for the three items already mentioned. 

The Committee feel that we have every reason to be encouraged 
by the response, and we are glad to announce that last year's General 
Missions Apportionment was overpaid; sufficient funds were paid to 
pay our pledge to the work at the University of North Carolina. 
Only half the amount apportioned w^as contributed for the University 
of the South (18 churches giving nothing) and less than half was 
given for combined work of Religious Education and Social Service 
(25 giving nothing). We feel that this is due to the great demands; 
but we urge all churches to make an effort to give something. 

The Committee desire to submit the following resolutions: 

(1) That the Offerings required by Canon for (a) Diocesan Theo- 
logical Education, (&) American Church Building Fund, be placed 
under object recommended. 

(2) That the Convention authorize the Committee to make the 
apportionments for "1919" in order to be sent to the various 
churches before January 1st. 

(3) That the Treasurer be requested to place on his statements 
sent to Parish Treasurers the apportionment for Religious Educa- 
tion and Social Service.

REPORT OF THE DIOCESA:^ BOARD OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATIOX 

The Diocesan Board of Religious Education reports that they have 
held two meetings-at Raleigh and Chapel Hill; two Sunday School 
Institutes have been held-at Charlotte and Cleveland. An effort is 
being made to have the examining chaplains of the Diocese define 
the scope of the canonical examinations. With the approval of the 
Bishop, the Board has endorsed the Christian Nurture Series as 
being the course of study that should be taught in the Diocese as far 
as possible. The Board recommends that their number be increased 
to twelve, four from each Convocation. 



58 Journal of Proceedings 

Tlie Chairman has given addresses on religious education before 
the Convocation of Raleigh and before meetings of Christians not of 
this communion. He has carried on a correspondence with Parish 
workers upon Sunday School work and secured articles for publica- 
tion in the Diocesan papers. All of w^hich is respectfully submitted. 
(Signed) Warrex W. Way, Chairman.

Vestry of St. Luke's, and all those who entertained so generously and 
beautifully the members of the Convention. 

Bev. Isaac W. Hughes read the report of the Committee on 
the State of the Church, as follows : 

Rt. Reverend Father in God, and Brethren in Convention AssemMed: 
In making its report, your Committee desires first to express its 
most hearty thanks to the Secretary of the Diocese for his admirable 
digest of the parochial reports, which to no small extent has light- 
ened their labors. 

As only five points failed to send in reports, practically the record 
of the whole parochial work of the Diocese for the nine months end- 
ing December 31, 1917, has been reviewed. Just at this point we 
prefer to offer a few words of counsel, however delinquent some of us 
may have been. 



Diocese of Xortii Carolixa, 1918 59 

First, as a matter of duty, second, as a matter of assistance to the 
Secretary, too much stress cannot be laid upon the necessity of 
promptly making out and remitting the reports when due. 

On the blanks now in use spaces are given for items not applicable 
in many parishes. These, of course, must remain vacant. Yet such 
as do apply should be conscientiously and scrupulously filled in. 

For instance: In some cases the space for baptized persons is 
left wholly blank. It is inconceivable that there can be parishes 
with confirmed persons and communicants and no baptized persons. 
Yet by such omission that is the practical implication. One has no 
right to guess more than the confirmed persons or communicants, 
and such a guess must be woefully inaccurate. But there is no 
excuse for a guess, w^hen the Church plainly demands a positive and 
accurate statement. 

We therefore earnestly urge that every space applicable to the 
individual parish be unerringly filled in. 
From this point optimism smiles upon us. 

In the number of baptized persons there has been a gain of one 
thousand seven hundred seventy-one (1,771) ; in communicants, three 
hundred twenty-six (326); in value of church property, $144,904, 
according to reports thus far made. 

While the actual number of those confirmed for the nine months is 
not so large as for the twelve months next preceding, the proportion 
is positively greater. 

No less tonic are the reports from the educational institutions of 
the Diocese. 

In a remarkable w^ay St. Mary's has carried its financial burdens 
under unusual conditions of war and weather; while her daughters 
have not only done their ordinary work well, but with high spirit 
have thrown themselves into the service of their country in food 
conservation. Red Cross work, Thrift Stamps, War Savings Stamps, 
Liberty Loan, and war gardens. 

While the number of pupils at the Thompson Orphanage is rather 
larger than usual, the health average has been high, and tender 
hearts have enabled it to begin another year under happy auspices. 

The enrollment of St. Augustine's has been excellent, and the stu- 
dents have paid over ten thousand dollars ($10,000) toward their 
board and tuition. 

A number of its graduates and students have entered the Army 
and Navy, while the body generally has gladly done its part along all 
lines of service to its country. 

This most admirable and helpful institution will celebrate its fif- 
tieth anniversary, in connection w^ith its commencement exercises, 
the 26th and 29th of this month. And it has proven w^orthy of its 
years. 



60 JouEiS^AL OF Proceedings 

Deserving especial note is the service of St. Agnes' Hospital. Al- 
though its expenditures have been almost $18,000, its patients have 
paid over $12,000 for their hoard. 

As we admire the high service of all these institutions, let us bear 
in mind their great needs also, and go forward toward a greater en- 
larging and stabilizing of the Orphanage resources, the actualizing of 
the $250,000 St. Mary's Fund, and securing the $100,000 Anniversary 
Fund of St. Augustine's. 

On the financial side the Woman's Auxiliary has transcended its 
zeal for the same length of time during the previous year, while it 
has been deepening its life and vitalizing its power through its 
Study Classes, corporate Communions, and observance of Inter- 
cessory days, and "The Pilgrimage of Prayer." 

Statistics are of value, yet their true estimate lies in the character 
of the spirit which produces them. 

In reviewing the work as a whole, we can but be conscious that 
a high and living spirit has animated it. In the agony of the world 
and of the country, and in the eager straining to, in some measure, 
ameliorate this agony, hearts have been moved, spirits have been 
quickened, and men and women have not only more keenly felt the 
need of their God. but have uplifted their souls to Him in deeper 
craving. And as their spirits have turned toward Him. we can but 
believe that they have realized as never, perhaps, before that the 
Church is the living church of the Living God, and serving there, 
they serve Him, their country, and the world. 

Surely, then, we may "Thank God, and take courage." 

Isaac Wayne Hughes, Chairman, 

For the Committee. 

On motion, Rev. Henry B. Delany was excused from 
further attendance upon tlie sessions of the Convention. 

Fraternal greetings were received from the Convention of 
the Missionary District of Asheville, to which the Secretary 
replied as follows : 

The Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina returns the fra- 
ternal greetings of the Convention of Asheville in the love and unity 
of the Gospel. Morrisox Bethea, Secretary. 

Mr. W. A. Erwin reported that he had notified Mr. Graham 
H. Andrews of his election as Treasurer, and that Mr. An- 
drews had accepted the office. 

Eev. Korvin C. Duncan offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted : 



Diocese of Xortii Carolina, 1918 61

tion of a Committee on Country Church and Rural Life, respectfully 
recommend that a Committee on Country Church and Rural Life be

Diocese of N'ortii Caeolixa, 1918 63 

On motion of Rev. Warren W. Way, the Convention ap- 
proved the plan of cooperation, as follows : 

PLAX OF DIOCESAN COOPERATION 

The Board of Religious Education of the Province of Sewanee 
requests the cooperation of the Boards of Religious Education of 
the Dioceses and Districts of the Province in carrying forward its 
campaign of training for Christian service. 

The following Plan of Diocesan Cooperation has been adopted by 
this Board. It is presented to the Diocesan Boards with the hope 
that they may see their way clear to energetic cooperation along 
these lines: 

1. Will you present to your Diocesan Convention a budget of Re- 
ligious Education in your Diocese, which shall include — 

(a) The Apportionment of the General Board of Religious Edu- 
cation? 
(&) The Apportionment of the Provincial Board? 
(c) The work of your own Board? 
(For 1918, the Provincial Board asks an amount equal to 160 per 
cent of the General Board's Apportionment.) 

2. Will you appoint a Field Worker for your Diocese, who will 
give, say. one month in the year to field work? Will you provide 
for his or her expenses? If the Diocesan Boards appoint such 
workers, they can cooperate with the plans of the Provincial Board, 
and can meet with the Provincial Field Secretary at the Sewanee 
Summer School, for conference and plans of cooperation. 

3. Will you undertake to have appointed in every parish and mis- 
sion a Correspondent of the Diocesan Board, who will undertake to 
furnish your Board with — 

(a) Lists of boys and girls who are students at schools and 
colleges away from home? 

{!)) Lists of boys and girls who may intend to go away from 
home to school or college, to whom literature may be sent 
concerning our. Church educational institutions? 

(c) Such other information as your Board may wish to obtain? 

4. Will you send the Provincial Secretary copies of your proceed- 
ings, reports, and such other matter as may be of interest to the 
Church in the Province? 

5. Will you distribute 100 or more copies of the Board's Bulletin, 
"Training for Christian Service in the Province of Sewanee," into 
the hands of persons interested in Religious Education? 

Rev. Warren W. Way offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted: 



64 JouRXAL OF Proceedings 

Resolved, That the Clergy of the Diocese be requested to take a 
voluntary offering on the third Sunday in October, or near as prac- 
ticable thereto, to be applied to the apportionment for the Board of 
Religious Education and the Commission on Social Service. 

On motion, May 13, 1919, was fixed as the date of meeting 
of the 103d Convention of the Diocese. 

The minutes of the last day's session were read and ap- 
proved. 

After the singing of Hymn ~^o. 649 and the blessing by

APPENDIX A 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP 



APPENDIX A 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP. 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

We meet for our one hundred and second annual Diocesan 
Convention amid solemn and inspiring surroundings. The 
mildness of our genial spring, and the bright May skies overhead, 
cannot but remind us by contrast of the darkness of suffering 
and sorrow covering so great a portion of the Christian world, 
and every day bringing nearer the assurance that we must bear 
our share of the world's burdens, and drink our draught of the 
common cup. I say it is a solemn moment in our life as Christ- 
ians and as citizens. But it is also an inspiring moment, for we 
are called upon to put into practice those principles of duty and 
of self-denial, of sacrifice to the uttermost, which we have ac- 
cepted as fundamental in our life, but which we seldom deeply 
feel or truly experience. Our Saviour says : "He that taketh 
not his cross and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He 
that findeth his life shall lose it : and he that loseth his life for 
my sake shall find it." We have all been hearing Him saying 
these words. They have come from our pulpits with every recur- 
ring holy Lenten season. But, how much have we heeded them ? 
How much of our life have we been willing to lose for his sake ? 
But now, our country takes up the words, and becomes the 
preacher. Through the length and breadth of the land sounds 
the summons. The voice of God, using now His secular mes- 
senger, declares the same principles, reiterates the familiar call, 
points out the same path, demands the same supreme sacrifice, 
and points to the same assured spiritual prize : "He that loveth 
father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; he that 
taketh not his cross and followeth after me, is not worthy of 
me; he that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his 
life for my sake shall find it." It is no irreverence to put these 
words into the mouth of our country when our country calls to 
duty, and to sacrifice in the path of duty. Taking up the cross ; 
following after Christ ; losing and. finding our life, are no vain 
and empty figures. Our Master is no Sophist or rhetorician. 
He is Man, and He calls to the spirit of man in the actual con- 



68 Address of the Bishop 

ditions of life, as in His good providence life confronts us. In 
so far as any human voice utters a true call to truth and to self- 
sacrifice, it is the Master speaking. And none of us can for a 
moment doubt that the call today sounding through the land, and 
echoing in every true and loyal heart, is a call to the service of 
God in resisting evil, and in establishing truth and justice, 
mercy and humanity in the earth. I say this is a solemn, and 
still more an inspiring moment, when the powers of the world 
feel the impulse of the spirit of Christ, and call men to count 
not their lives dear unto themselves, but to lay down all things 
before the altar of truth and duty. And the way in which men 
respond to this call, and without hesitation offer their lives to 
the sacrifice, makes me feel that this fundamental principle of 
the Gospel enters much more largely into men's lives than we 
commonly suppose. Possibly it is the fault of us Christian 
preachers, and teachers, and leaders, that more of the spirit of 
ready sacrifice is not evoked in the ordinary life of the Church. 
Could we make our work and our methods more real, more 
obviously responsive to actual conditions and necessities, per- 
haps we should arouse greater attention and stimulate a more 
abundant resj^onse, in lives devoted even unto death in warfare 
against the many evils which degrade men, body and soul, in 
this world before destroying their souls in any world to come. 

And thus rejoicing in the noble exertions which our country 
is making in upholding Truth and Righteousness in the earth, 
let us address ourselves humbly, yet courageously, to the tasks 
which lie before us in maintaining the spiritual life and wel- 
fare of our people at home. All of us cannot go to war. Much 
more work in the aggregate needs to be done at home than on 
the fields of battle. By its wise and generous exemptions from 
the call to military service, our country has in effect said to us 
that Ave must make it our part to see that the life at home re- 
mains normal, vigorous and abundant in its manifold activities. 
In the infinite variety and intricacy of modern life, the part of 
^Tiim who abides by the stuff" has become more important, 
even to the accomplishment of military achievements, than that 
of him who goes down to the battle. We may feel then that in 
all our orderly and accustomed duties we are bearing our part in 
our country's great enterprise. In this spirit let us take up 
and go through this day's business. 



Diocese of ]^oetii Carolina, 1918 69 

Since the last meeting of our Diocesan Convention, we have 
lost from our earthly Communion the Rev. William Thomas 
Picard, our oldest Deacon, and also our oldest Colored Priest, 
the Rev. John William Perry, of St. Luke's Church, Tar- 
borough. The Rev. Mr. Picard, seventy-nine years of age at 
the time of his death, was ordained to the diaconate May 11, 
1887, and had served faithfully in that office for over thirty 
years, supporting himself and his family by pursuing his secular 
business, as was his purpose when he took orders, but serving his 
parish, the Church of the Saviour, Jackson, with a diligence 
and devotion which kept back nothing which he was able to 
give. He was a man of singular purity, piety, and zeal. As 
long as his strength permitted he assisted the rector of the parish 
when present, and, in the absence of the priest, officiated in 
the Church on all Sundays and other holy days. At times, 
according as he found opportunity, he ministered in other parts 
of the county. He neither received nor desired any compensa- 
tion for his services. It was a labor of love and his chief de- 
light. "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the 
house of the Lord," might well be the summary of his devoted 
and blameless life, supplemented by those other words: '':^rot 
slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord." 

The Rev. John W. Perry was one of a band of rather remark- 
able young colored men who went out from St Augustine's 
School some forty years ago. At that time the school was un- 
der the administration of the Rev. John E. C. Smedes, D.D., one 
of the most godly, learned, and devoted men whom we have ever 
had in this Diocese. Joined with him in the instruction of those 
young colored men who were looking forward to the Holy Min- 
istry, was the Rev. Dr. Hubbard, a former professor of Latin in. 
the University of North Carolina, a ripe and accomplished 
scholar. Under the teaching, discipline and influence of St. 
Augustine's School, and especially of the two men named, the 
Rev. Drs. Smedes and Hubbard, a number of the most devoted 
and useful colored clergymen whom we have had anywhere in 
the Church, were developed. John W. Perry, Hannibal S. Hen- 
derson, Wm. R. Harris, Henry S. McDuffey, and Primus P. 
Alston, are honored names among the first of our colored Priests. 



TO Address of the Bishop 

I believe Mr. S. G. Atkins, the distinguished colored Educator, 
now at the head of the Slater School in Winston-Salem, was the 
product of St. Augustine's School during the same period. The 
Eev. John W. Perry spent the whole of his ministerial life in 
St. Luke's Church, our oldest colored parish. He was ordained 
Deacon by Bishop Lyman, June 12, 1881, and was advanced to 
the Priesthood, April 7, 1887. He died April 24, 1918, lacking 
only a few weeks of completing thirty-seven years in the minis- 
try. He began a mission in Wilson and built a church in that 
town. Upon its being destroyed by fire he again assumed charge 
of the work, and rebuilt the church. At Tarborough he built a 
beautiful and commodious church, and during his whole course 
commanded by his life and work the confidence and personal 
esteem of the whole conmiunity. A large and successful parish 
school, kept up chiefly by his personal service, and the assistance 
of his excellent wife and daughter, was of great benefit to his 
work, and was an influence for the moral and spiritual, as well 
as the intellectual, enlightenment and development of the num- 
erous colored population of the town and the county. He rests 
from his labors, and his works do follow him. 

In accordance with the requirements of our Canons, I submit 
herewith a detailed statement of my visitations, and other offi- 
cial actions from April 1st, 1917, to December 31st, of the same 
year. This report therefore is for the space of nine months in- 
stead of a full year. This is in order to make our Convention 
year hereafter coincide with the secular year. This will account 
for some seeming falling off in services, confirmations, etc. But 
making allowance for the shorter period, I believe there is no 
decrease, but rather an increase.

Communion 35 times; preached 75 times; made 25 addresses; 
confirmed 431 candidates; baptized 2 infants; officiated at 6 
funerals, and ordained 3 Priests and 1 Deacon. The importance 
of the ordinations demands a more explicit record. 

July 1. 1917, being the Fourth Sunday after Triyiity. in St. Am- 
brose Church, Raleigh, I advanced to the Priesthood John Ethophilus 
Grattan Small, a colored Deacon, presented by Archdeacon Lawrence.

80 Address of the Bishop 

November 30, 1917, St. Axdkew's Day, in the Church of the Good 
Shepherd, Raleigh, I ordained to the Diaconate, Theodore Stroup, 
presented by the Rev. A. B. Hunter, D.D. Ther sermon was preached 
by the Rev. Phillip S. Oilman. 

Since January 1st, i. e., witli our current convention year,, 
not otherwise covered by this report, I have ordained 2 Deacons^ 
James Reginald Mallett, May 1st, and Roma Coxey Fortune, 
May 5th. The detailed record of these ordinations must form 
part of my report to our Diocesan Convention of May, 1919 ; 
but I must mention this here because under our Canons they are 
entitled to seats in this Convention, and therefore, their ordina- 
tions must appear of record. This is one of the practical incon- 
veniences of holding our Convention so long after the close of 
the Convention year. 

During the period covered by this report, and up to May 1. 
1918, we have added the following names to our Clergy List: 
Theodore Stroup, Deacon, ordained November 30, 1917. 
James Reginald Mallett, Deacon, ordained May 1, 1918. 
Roma Coxey Fortune, Deacon, ordained May 5, 1918. 
Lewis Chester Morrison, Priest, from Harrisburg, April 27, 1917. 
Edward Worseley Baxter, Priest, from New Westminister, B.A., 

May 15, 1917. 
Phillips Standish Oilman, Priest, from Massachusetts, June 15, 

1917. 
Milton Moran Weston, Priest, from Oeorgia, September 1, 1917. 
Charles Culmer Kelsey, Priest, from East Carolina, March, 1918. 
William DeLancey Benton, Priest, from W. New York, April 18, 

1918. 

During the same period we have lost : 

Thomas William Picard, Deacon, died December 31, 1917. 

John William Perry, Priest, died April 24, 1918. 

Adolphus Whitfield Cheatham, Priest, to Michigan, November 6, 

1917. 
Lewis Chester Morrison, Priest, to Long Island, December 4, 1917. 
Arthur William Taylor, Priest, to South Carolina, January 1, 1918. 
Basil Manly Walton, Priest, to East Carolina, February 22, 1918. 

Also September 10, 1917, I suspended from the Ministry, 
Clarance Greene Prosperi, Deacon, on his own request, for 
causes fully known to me, and not affecting his moral character. 
And March 28, 1918, his purpose and desire remaining un- 
changed, I proceeded to depose him. 



Diocese of Xortii Carolixa, 1918 81 



I should add that the Rev. Cyprian P. Willcox has removed 
to the Diocese of Atlanta, but has not as yet taken letters dismis- 
sory. 

Up to May 14, 1918, we have added to our Clergy list three 
Deacons and six Priests, a total of nine. We lost in all one 
Deacon and five Priests. Our present number, therefore, is in 
all 65. 

The fields of work of the Clergy remain as they were last 
year, with the following exceptions : 

The Rev. Bertram E. Brown, February, 1918, obtained a 
three-months leave of absence from Calvary Church, Tar- 
borough, and has been doing work mth the Young Mens' Christ- 
ian Association in Camp Pike at Little Rock, Ark. 

The Rev. Henry O. Xash, of Emmanual Church, Southern 
Pines, under an appointment from the Church, was commis- 
sioned Volunteer Chaplain in Camp Greene, near Charlotte. 

The Rev. Jacob F. Burg, has removed from All Saints' 
Church, Hamlet, and has been placed in charge of St. Mat- 
thew's and St. Jude's churches. Rowan County. 

The Rev. Samuel M. Hanif at the end of 1917, resigned 
charge of Calvary Church, Wadesboro, and All Souls' Church, 
Ansonville, and accepted a call to become rector of All Saints' 
Church, Concord. 

The Rev. Francis Joyner has felt obliged to resign the charge 
of St. Bartholomew Church, Pittsboro, on account of the con- 
dition of his health, and to confine himself to the work at 
Littleton. 

The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence the first of July, 1917, resigned 
charge of St. Matthews' Church, Hillsboro, and St. Mary's, 
Orange County, and accepted the position of Archdeacon of 
Raleigh. 

The Rev. James D. Miller has within the last month resigned 
his charge of St. Andrew's Church, Greensboro, and intends

try, resigned in June, 1917 tlie work at Laurinburg and in 
Iredell County. I feel obliged to say, however, that, excepting 
the fact that he receives no salary or other compensation, I 
can see no diminution in the zeal and devotion with which he 
continues his faithful labors in those places which he resigned, 
and wherever else he can find opportunity of serving those other- 
wise unprovided for. 

The Rev. Wm. Hoke Ramsaur, in temporary charge of the 
Church of the Messiah, Mayodan, during the summer of 1917, 
has during the past year been acting as Travelling Secretary in 
the Students' Volunteer Missionary Movement. 

The Rev. Thomas L. Trott, at the end of 1917, resigned the 
work at Monroe and Rockingham, greatly to the regret of his 
congregations at those places, and has undertaken the very im- 
portant work at High Point. 

The Rev. IST. Collin Hughes, who had for nearly nine years 
diligently and effectively discharged the duties and carried on 
the work of Archdeacon of Raleigh, at the end of June, 1917, re- 
signed that position, in order to accept the very important posi- 
tion of Chaplain at the State Farm in Halifax County, where 
the greater number of the State convicts are kept. It was with 
very deep mutual regret that Mr. Hughes and I severed the 
close relations which had existed between us as Archdeacon and 
Bishop, but we both felt that to have a part in the effort just 
inaugurated for the improvement of our methods of dealing 
with, the State convicts was an opportunity for good work not 
to be declined. Archdeacon Hughes's deep interest in these 
men, and his earnest and laborious endeavors for their welfare, 
during all the years of his work as Archdeacon, had been no 
small influence in bringing about the recent efforts for improve- 
ment, and doubtless determined the choice of the Governor for 
the Chaplaincy created by the action of the last Legislature. 
I therefore felt constrained to advise Mr. Hughes to accept 
the appointment. I believe this very important work could not 
be in better hands. 

The Rev. Phillips S. Oilman, received from Massachusetts,

Diocese of ISTokth Carolina, 1918 83 

The Rev. Clias. C. Kelsey is assisting the rector of Christ 
Church, Raleigh, having special charge of St. Saviour's Chapel. 

The Rev. Wm. D. Benton, D.D., is rector of St. Matthew's 
Church, Hillsboro, and has under his charge St. Mary's Church, 
Orange County. 

The Rev. Theodore Stroup, Deacon, has since his ordination 
been serving in St. Thomas's Church, Reidsville, giving one 
Sunday in each month to the missions at Milton and Cuningham 

The Rev. James Reginald Mallett, Deacon, is still at the 
General Theological Seminary, but expects early in June to be- 
gin work at Mayodan, and neighboring missions. 

The Rev. Roma C. Fortune, Deacon, will continue in Dur- 
ham, working under the direction of the Rev. Sidney S. Bost, 
in ministering to the deaf people of that city, but will also 
extend his work into other sections of the Diocese, and possibly 
of our neighboring Dioceses, should his services be desired. 
The services of the Church are peculiarly adapted to the neces- 
sities of the deaf, and it is confidently expected that the Rev. 
Mr. Fortune will be able to do a useful work among them. 

THE SUPREME DUTY OF THE HOUR. 

There is a danger that in the excitement of this great national 
crisis of the world's history, and in the clamorous demands made 
on all sides for our sympathy and our cooperation, we may 
suffer some confusion of ideas, and seriously mistake our real 
duties and obligations. I think I have seen some such mis- 
takes. Many of them proceed from high and pure motives, and 
illustrate noble qualities of character. But they are none the less 
mistakes, and injurious in the end. Our supreme duty is that 
each man should stand in his place, and do that work which 
specially belongs to him to do. If we have a plain and dis- 
tinct duty before us, we have no right to neglect it and run off 
to some more attractive or adventurous or dangerous field 
of service, because it. appeals to us. So far as I am able to un^ 
derstand the true principles of duty, a clergyman has no right 
to abandon the exercise of his function, and to undertake other 
work. He has voluntarily devoted himself to a specific course, 
and has solemnly pledged himself to pursue it excliisively. 
Upon that condition alone he received his ministerial commis- 



84 Address of the Bishop 

sion. I am not saying that his country may not make such a 
demand upon him as would require him to obey her call ; I am 
not saying that want of a field for ministerial labor might not 
justify him in taking other work ; I am not saying that a lack 
of men to do other important work might not be a valid reason 
for him to respond to the necessity of the case. But I do say 
that none of these peculiar circumstances exist at the present 
time, to justify our Clergy in leaving the proper work of the 
Ministry to engage in the secular duties arising out of our 
great struggle. Our country, so far from calling on the Clergy 
to abandon their proper functions, has declared expressly and 
emphatically that they should not do this. By exempting the 
Clergy from military service, exempting them as Clergymen, our 
government has said that their proper function is so important 
to the welfare of the nation, that the country demands of them 
that they apply themselves diligently to their proper duties. 
There is abundant work for them, both at home and in the 
army. If some proper appointment in the army, calling for 
the exercise of his function, comes to a Clergyman, he may prop- 
erly accept it. But if no such opportunity offers, the eagerness 
of his spirit to have a hand in the great conflict does not justify 
him in undertaking, secular work. And no imaginary benefits to 
be derived from the perilous experiences of war will so much 
avail for the real discipline of his character as submitting to 
give up his own personal desire, and doing his duty in that 
state of life in which it hath pleased God to call him. And 
certainly no one can plead that there is any lack of men who may 
properly supply all the great demands for service. The coun- 
try is proceeding upon the sound and safe principle that it 
calls for what it needs. It calls for its fighting- men, for its 
Surgeons, its Chaplains, its Red Cross workers, and all the 
infinite variety of persons and professions needed, and the re- 
sponse is universal. It has at its command more men and 
women than it can use. As it seems to me, the Clergyman who 
abandons his function and undertakes work that gives no special 
opportunity to him as a Clergyman, is violating the fundamental 
principle so wisely adopted by the Government in carrying on 
this war. He is deserting the great cause of the organized 
moral and spiritual forces of society, and is undertaking the 
task which our government has wisely imposed upon other men. 



Diocese of ^ortii Carolina^ 1918 85 

I say notliing of the great Christian tradition, which prohibits 
the voluntary taking up of arms by those in Holy Orders; 
though in these days of an increasing sense of the importance of 
corporate life, and the obligation of the social conscience, so 
general a feeling in all ages of the Church, expressed in many 
ancient canons, should not be lightly regarded. We have not 
been able to look with satisfaction upon the great Mediaeval 
Prince Bishops who led their armed vassals to war ; yet in doing 
so they were only responding to their legal obligations, as hold- 
ers of great fiefs under the crown. They were not volunteering 
to take up arms. And in the case of our own great Bishop 
Polk, it must be remembered that he became a soldier only in 
obedience to a specific and peremptory demand made upon him, 
when his country had been invaded, to do a defensive work, 
which there was no one else at hand to do. And time and again 
he sought to be released from his military duties. His was no 
case of voluntarily taking up arms. 

I feel it necessary, my brethren, to speak of this matter, I 
appreciate the spirit of heroic self-sacrifice, which impels the 
young Priest to feel that he must go and take his place in the 
ranks with his brethren. But we are not our own masters. We 
have dedicated ourselves to a particular work, an important 
work; and our country, no less than the necessities of the 
Church and of the world, has said to us that we must stand in 
our place, and do our own work, while those who are called for 
that other work fulfill also their duty in doing what they are 
called to do. 

I believe I need not exhort you all. Clergy and Laity, to 
answer with zeal and enthusiasm every demand for self-denying 
service in the cause of our country. I see on all sides that you 
are doing this. I am thankful to say that up to the present 
time I see also, a noble spirit of faithfulness in responding to 
the needs of our Church work. So far as I know there is no 
falling off in the offerings of our people for local, diocesan, or 
general purposes. On the whole our people seem disposed to 
rise to the occasion and to keep up our work to at least its 
general average. Indeed, within the last few months I have 
received for our Diocesan Missionary work the largest gift 
(exclusive of legacies), which I have ever received from one 



86 Address of the Bishop 

person. But I fear tliat the tremendous expenses of the war, 
the great increase of taxes, the vast sums asked for and given 
to the Young Mens' Christian Association for Army work, 
and our Church War Commission, and the National Red Cross, 
may eventually have the effect of making it harder for our 
people to keep up the level of their usual contributions. I must 
ask you to be on your guard, and to remember that while we 
all render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, we must not 
forget to render to God and to God's Church the things which 
are properly theirs. 

In this connection let me make a suggestion : The trouble 
with many of us in our giving is that we have no method and 
no standard. Let me suggest a simple method and a con- 
venient standard, a method and a standard which experience and 
observation have shown me to be most effective. Let every per- 
son of responsible age, who has an income from personal labor 
or from any form of property, make a rule to put by, as that 
income is received, some definite part of it for religious and 
charitable uses. Many have found that one-tenth is little 
enough. If a small income will not bear so gi'eat a deduction, 
then let it be one-twelfth, one-fifteenth, or one-twentieth; but 
a fixed and regular portion. Certainly all men in good circum- 
stances can give a tenth, even if their poorer brethren have to 
make it less. So much for method. 'Now for a standard: let 
such a man give to our general Foreign and Domestic Missions 
one day's income, to our Diocesan Missions the same, to our 
Thompson Orphanage the same. This will leave him quite 
enough to supply his personal work and his personal charities 
much more generously than most of us have been accustomed to 
give. One-tenth of a man's income, allowing three hundred days 
to the working year, is the income for thirty days ; one-twentieth 
is the income for fifteen days, so it is easy to see that the one 
day's income for the three principal objects mentioned leaves a 
generous proportion for local church work and personal chari- 
ties. 

The Board of Missions has asked for individual gifts from 
those who feel able to give something over and above their 
parish apportionment for general Foreign and Domestic Mis- 
sions. And I hereby appoint the First Sunday after Trinity, 



Diocese of North Cakoeixa, 1918 87 

June 2d, as a day (of wliicli I ask all the Clergy to give notice 
every intervening Sunday), wlien all our people are asked to 
make an offering of one day's income to our great work of build- 
ing up the Church in our own country, and wherever else our 
activities extend our Foreign and Domestic Missions. 

You must realize, without any further words of mine, how im- 
possible it is that I should include in this address all the topics 
which demand the attention of this Convention. Especially im- 
portant is the work of St. Mary's School, and the efforts the 
Trustees are making, largely by the work of the Kev. Francis 
M. Osborne, to put that great institution upon a broader and 
stronger foundation, to increase its efficiency, and to extend its 
benefits. That will be brought before us in the report of the 
Board of Trustees. We have, also, the great question of some 
better provision for church work among our I^egroes, and. 
whether we shall elect a Suffragan Bishop for this work. A 
"special committee has already laid its report on that subject be- 
fore us. To all these, and to many other matters of great and 
vital concern, I invite your earnest consideration and your wise 
and generous action. And we cannot do better than pray over 
again our last week's collect : "Grant to us, O Lord, that by Tiiy 
holy inspiration we may think those things that are good, and 
by Thy merciful guiding may perform the same." 

Jos. Blount Cheshire.

State Farm. Rev. ^N". C. Hiiglies, Chaplain. 

I became Chaplain at the State Farm, June 16, 1917. 

It is not easy to make a report as Chaplain conform to the regular 
report. Figures for baptized persons and communicants are omitted. 
The number of individuals under my care varies from month to 
month. No collections are taken at the services. 

My activities as Chaplain are very much limited by the prison reg- 
ulations and exigencies of the situation. Besides services on Sundays 
and a week-night Bible Class, my work consists chiefly in visiting in 
the cells and the hospital, and in affording entertainment to the 
prisoners. 

The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese has given money for a Vic- 
trola and some records, and is still giving more. Rev. Harry 0. Nash 
has given a stereopticon and slides. Rev. Bertram E. Brown and 
Mr. Ben Hardy have visited the prison and afforded delightful enter- 
tainment to the camps. Through the liberality of friends of the 
work in the State, a beautiful and well-laden Christmas tree was. 
supplied at each camp. Such a concrete example of Christian Social 
Service makes both prisoners and Chaplain grateful. 

Appended is an account of funds contributed by the Auxiliary: 
Cash on hand April 25, 1917, $81.70; received since, $57.79— total 
$139.49. Disbursements: Victrola, Bibles, records, Testaments, etc., 
$113.42— balance on hand $26.07.

APPENDIX B 

Section 2 



REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACON OP THE CONVOCATION OF 
CHARLOTTE 



To the Rt. Rev. Jos. Bloun^t Cheshire, D.D. 

Bishop of Xorth Carolina: 

I respectfully submit my report as Archdeacon of the Charlotte 
Convocation, covering period April 1st to December 31st, 1917. 

Services conducted in whole or part, 85; celebrations of the Holy 
Communion, 44; baptisms, infant, 12; candidates presented for con- 
firmation, 8; burials, 5; marriages, 4; sermons and addresses, 87; 
pastoral visits, 623. 

A review of the work for the period covered by this report gives 
us continued cause for thankfulness and encouragement 

We are now active participants in the greatest international con- 
flict of which we have any record in the annals of history, and I am 
proud to say that as a Nation we are struggling whole-heartedly and 
unselfishly, in conjunction with our splendid allies, not indeed with 
any desire for material gain, or conquest, but only because, as one of 
the foremost exponents of the religion of the Man of Galilee, we are 
seeking to establish an universal and lasting peace, vouchsafing 
freedom and liberty to all the peoples of the earth, and, as we hope 
and believe, make it possible for Christianity to become a greater 
world power than ever before, thus enabling the Church of the Living 
God to more speedily and adequately fulfill her divine mission to all 
mankind. 

While it is true that in these last days the eyes of all loyal and 
patriotic Americans are focused upon the blood-stained battlefields of 
Europe, yet, thanks be to God, those whom He has placed upon the 
watchtowers of Zion have been keenly alive to the fact that an ever- 
present conflict is going on in our very midst, the conflict between the 
average man and his soul, and it is a source of great joy to me — and 
would be to you, my friends and brethren — to go in and out among 
these faithful heralds of the cross within the bounds of this Convo- 
cation, and note their splendid zeal and untiring efforts in building 
up and extending the work of our dear Lord's Kingdom in that por- 
tion of His great Vineyard committed to our care and keeping. 

And then, too, I am quite sure that there has never been a time in 
our beloved Diocese when there has been a more manifest willing- 
ness on the part of our zealous laymen to measure up to the require- 



126 Repoets of Aechdeacoxs 

ments of their stewardship, and our good women still continue to 
set a pace for us in loving and self-sacrificing service for the Master 
which we find it difficult to even approach. 

Another heartening feature of our work is the wonderful revival 
of interest in the work of our Sunday Schools. Unquestionably, this 
awakening is due in a large measure to the more frequent holding 
of institutes, teacher training classes, etc. Increased efficiency on 
the part of our teachers has done much to stimulate the interest of 
the scholar. We have at present approximately one thousand pupils 
in our Mission Sunday Schools, and seventy-one teachers. 

During the nine months ending December 31st, preaching mis- 
sions have been held at Spencer. China Grove, St. Timothy's, Union 
County; Christ Church, Cleveland, Ascension Chapel, Davie County; 
St. Mark's, Mecklenburg County; Reidsville, Monroe, and Rocking- 
ham. These missions were well attended and quite fruitful of 
results. 

Of the forty-three apportionments set against the Parishes and 
Missions of the Convocation for the support of our Diocesan Mission 
work, forty-one were paid in full, and a few overpaid; the remaining 
three were paid in part. 

The stipends of our missionaries were paid fully and promptly, as 
well as our assessments to the Church Pension Fund. 

The Rev. Thomas L. Trott relinquished the work at Monroe and 
Rockingham January 1st, and became the rector of St. Mary's 
Church, High Point. This leaves our Missions between Charlotte 
and Hamlet vacant. However, we trust a suitable worker for this 
important field may soon be found. 

Since the removal of the Rev. Messrs. Edw^ards and Taylor from 
the Diocese, the Mayodan and Mount Airy groups of Missions have 
been without regular ministrations, but will be taken charge of by 
the Rev. Messrs. Mallett and Hale, on or about June 1st. 

Trinity Mission, Statesville, is being supplied at present by the 
Archdeacon, as well as our two Missions in Salisbury. 

The Rev. J. Frederick Burg has been transferred from Hamlet to 
St. Matthew's and St. Jude's Missions in Rowan County. 

Last October the Archdeacon was pleasantly surprised by the pre- 
sentation, through Mr. D. Cameron McRae of Concord and Mr. James 
G. Lambert of High Point, with a fully equipped Ford touring car, 
the gift of some of our generous Church-folk throughout the Con- 
vocation. Needless to say this very useful and splendid gift w^ill 
greatly increase the scope and efficiency of the Archdeacon's work, 
for which he desires to make grateful acknowledgment.

128 Reports of Archdeacoxs 

REPORT OF ARCHDEACON FOR COLORED WORK IN THE 
DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph Beouxt Cheshire, D.D., 

Bishop of North Carolina: 

I respectfully submit the following as a report of my official acts 
for the year ending December 31, 1917: 

Services conducted in whole or in part, 65; celebrations of the 
Holy Communion, 34; baptisms (infants 6, adults 9), 15; sermons 
and addresses, 55; visitations to the different Parishes and Mis- 
sions, 54. 

During the nine months constituting the Diocesan year I traveled 
more than 5,500 miles within the Diocese and; over 1,000 miles 
without. 

A trip to Baltimore last October to attend the session of the 
Colored Conference proved helpful to the Convocation, for the 
Conference being in sympathy with our struggles for the completion 
of the Thomas Cain Memorial Church, pledged $500 towards its com- 
pletion; and nearly 50 per cent of the amount of these pledges have 
already been paid. In behalf of the Colored Convocation, I am glad 
to tell the Convention that had it not been for the embargo placed 
on building materials this church would have been finished. And 
as it is, the walls have been completed, the building inclosed, the roof 
covered with asbestos shingles, and sufficient funds are now in hand 
for its completion. When finished, it will be one of the most sub- 
stantial as well as imposing churches of the Convocation. 

On the 27th of November last, by invitation, I visitedt the Diocese 
of East Carolina and at Belhaven took part in the Imposition of 
Hands on the occasion of the Rev. R. I. Johnson's advance to the 
priesthood. At night the Archdeacon of the Colored Convocation 
was their preacher. 

During this Diocesan year the plan for the working of the Missions 
had never been more carefully laid. Our hopes for bettering the 
condition of some of our stations were never greater, and but for 
certain changes not contemplated, I am certain that our hopes would 
have been realized. The Missions at Greensboro, Winston-Salem, 
Salisbury, and; Statesville have suffered because of the upsetting of 
our plans. Prof. A. Myron Cochran, who had been placed in charge 
of our St. Philip's of this city and Holy Cross of Statesville, was 
called to the Diocese of Mississippi last August, and other changes 
of a similar nature greatly affected the working of these Missions. 
Last December the Missions at Greensboro and Winston-Salem were 
left without immediate supervision, with the retirement of Mr. 
George W. Bullock, the catechist in charge. To better the condition 
we have, with the consent of the Bishop of the Diocese, selected a 
young clergyman to take charge of the Missions at Salisbury and 



Diocese of Xorth Cakolixa, 1918 129 

Statesville next month. With the assistance of lay helpers that we 
are hopeful of securing, the Missions at Greensboro and Winston- 
Salem will be able to have their chapels open for Divine services 
every Sunday, and thus keep their congregations together until the 
services of a clergyman can be secured. 

On Sunday, July the 15th, the Church of the Redeemer was in- 
jured by a storm; but with the assistance of the Bishop and the 
efforts of the congregation, the church was soon righted and again 
opened to the congregation for services. 

The Rev. John W. Perry, senior priest of the Convocation, died in 
Tarboro on Wednesday, April the 24th. He was highly respected in 
life and signally honored in death. Tlie Vestry of the Parish Church 
attended his funeral in a body. The Rev. Milton M. Weston, priest 
in charge of St. Luke's Church, Tarboro, took charge of the parish 
on September- last. The prospects of a self-supporting congregation 
are very bright. 

The Convocation with her nineteen mission stations, her faithful 
clergy and catechists, the teachers and scholars of her day schools 
and Sunday Schools, still pleads your kindly guidance, and we wish 
to reiterate here our assurances that we are with you, and will do 
all that lies within us to aid you in solving the problems of the hour. 

Notwithstanding the unsettled condition of affairs within and 
without the Diocese, the Negro is full of faith in the providence of 
God and in the possibilities of His country; and when the smoke of 
battle will have again lifted from the earth, the Church, the Nation's 
beacon, will find that new demands will have been made upon her 
by my people not because of the Negro's prowess, but because of his 
reverence for her tenets, his loyalty, his devotion to the Nation's 
flag. Respectfully submitted, 

Henry B. Delany, 

Archdeacon.

Diocese of ^NTokth Carolixa, 1918 131 



REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACON OF THE CONVOCATION OF 

RALEIGH 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D.D. 

Reverend Father in God: — The summary of my official acts for 
the six months, July 1st to December 31st, is as follows: 

Within the Convocation — Services in whole or in part, 65; celebra- 
tions of the Holy Communion, 15; sermons, addresses, and lectures, 
48; candidate presented for ordination, 1; marriage, 1; conferences, 
20; visits, 188. 

Without the Convocation — Services. 3; sermons, 3; candidate pre- 
sented for ordination, 1. 

On my taking up the work as Archdeacon on July 1, 1917, I found 
all the Missions and small Parishes receiving regular services. Un- 
fortunately, that condition did not last long. In September the 
Rev. Basil M. Walton resigned as assistant to the Rev. I. W. Hughes, 
and so left the Parishes of Kittrell and Louisburg vacant. The Rev. 
I. W. Hughes has been kind enough to give Kittrell a monthly serv- 
ice, but Louisburg has been almost without services. In November 
the Rev. Lewis C. Morrison resigned Duke and Smithfield, and the 
Rev. Frank B. Ticknor resigned Sanford, Gulf, and Holly Springs. 
In the same month, also, the Rev. Harry O. Nash returned to his 
work at Southern Pines, leaving Townesville, Stovall, and Middle- 
burg vacant, which places he had served very acceptably during the 
summer months. In December the Rev. Francis Joyner, because 
of failing health, resigned the Parish of Pittsboro. 
The only new worker in the Convocation is the Rev. Theodore 
Stroup, who assumed charge of the Missions at Cunningham and 
Milton in October, giving them a monthly service. 

At the close of the year the financial situation was very unsatisfac- 
tory, due partly to the fact that several parishes were very dilatory 
in paying their apportionments, and partly to the fact that several 
new appropriations were made during the year, appropriations for 
which the apportionments had not originally provided. 

In the months that have followed the resignations above mentioned 
I have given all the services I could to the vacant places. At least 
some of these vacancies will be filled; shortly. 

Owing to the vacancies, the financial situation has improved, but 
with the missions fully cared for, more money than the minimum 
asked for by the apportionment will be required. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alfred S. Lawrence, 

Archdeacon.

REPORT OF THE CONVOCATION OF RALEIGH TO THE CON- 
VENTION HELD IN ST. LUKE'S CHURCH, SALISBURY, 
MAY 14. 15. AND 16, 1918. ACCORDING TO CANON. 

The following reports are for the nine months, April 1st to Decem- 
ber 31st, 1917: 

At the May meeting of the Executive Committee the Rev. N. C. 
Hughes announced his resignation as Archdeacon in order to take 
up the important work as Chaplain of the State Farm. 

On motion of Rev. S. S. Bost, the following resolution was adopted: 

The Executive Committee of the Convocation of Raleigh, having 
heard; with regret of the resignation of the Rev. N. Collin Hughes 
as Archdeacon of the Convocation, do 

Resolve, That the Executive Committee hereby record their appre- 
ciation of the long and faithful services of the Archdeacon, during 
which the missionary work of the Convocation has been greatly 
strengthened and enlarged. 

Resolved further, That the relationship between the Archdeacon 
and this Committee, both personal and official, are severed; with 
regret, and we bid him God-speed in his new field of labor as Chap- 
lain of the State Farm. 

The Bishop announced that he had appointed the Rev. A. S. Law- 
rence of Hillsboro as Archdeacon; and that he would take up the 
work July 1st. Rev. Mr. Lawrence took up the work promptly, and 
has energetically visited the fields and supervised the work and 
supplied the vacancies himself, and has evidenced his ability and 
adaptability for the work in a gratifying way, from whch the Com- 
mittee hopes for great results. 

The Committee reports regular meetings and well attended, and 
that they have kept in touch with the work in all fields. 

The Clerical Conferences instituted by Archdeacon Hughes have 
been continued and have been found very helpful. 

The Appropriations and Apportionments for the Conventional 
year of 1918 are appended as part of this report. 

Owing to the war, it was felt unwise to increase the apportion- 
ments, but if all fields are filled, as will appear from the reports, 
$1,500 more will be needed; and it is therefore hoped that every 
parish will do their best to increase their apportionments, and will 
add at least 30 per cent to the same as listed. 

The Clergy who are in the Convocation at present are doing splen- 
did and efficient work. At the close of the last year four men re- 
signed from their work, leaving twelve fields vacant. It is hoped 
that these vacancies will shortly be filled. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Wm. H. Ruffix, Secretary.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE THOMPSON 
ORPHANAGE AND TRAINING INSTITUTION 

The thirty-second annual meeting of the Board of Managers of the 
Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution was held in the 
Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin on the 23d day of April, 1918, a major- 
ity of the Board being present, and the Bishop of the Diocese pre- 
siding. 

The Rev. Walter J. Smith, Superintendent and Treasurer, read his 
report for the year ending December 31, 1917. 

Mr. Joseph G. Shannonhouse, Treasurer of the Permanent Endow- 
ment Funds, also read his report. 

These reports were accompanied by the report of Mr. John Springs 
Myers, Auditing Committee, stating that he had audited the accounts, 
and that they were correct, and these several reports are herewith 
submitted as part of this report. 

The Board of Managers notes with much satisfaction that notwith- 
standing the strenuous financial condition of the country and high 
cost of living, the finances of the institution are in a healthy and 
encouraging condition, the year having closed without any debt and 



Diocese of iN'oRTH CarolixAj 1918 135 

with a reasonable balance in the treasury, which bears witness to the 
generosity of our people throughout the State, who, in spite of the 
numerous calls upon them for aid, have not been unmindful of the 
needs of this sacred charge which has been committed to them. 

The general condition of the Orphanage is most satisfactory, con- 
sidering the means at our command. The children seem happy, 
healthy, and contented. The matrons, teachers, and farm manager 
are able and efficient, and the sanitary conditions good. Tlie Super- 
intendent's report shows highly satisfactory results from the farm 
and dairy, and that the contributions have exceeded what they have 
been for the same length of time in any other year. 

But we are most forcibly reminded that our requirements are 
greater than they have ever been before, with no prospects of any 
decrease of expenses, and we earnestly ask our people to keep this 
fact constantly in mind, and be prepared to continue their generous 
support. 

We would call the attention of the Convention to a resolution 
adopted; some time ago, asking all Sunday Schools in the Diocese to 
make monthly offerings for the support of this work. And we would 
add to this an earnest request that an Orphanage Guild be formed in 
every church congregation in the State for the same purpose where 
such has not been done. If this course was adopted throughout the 
State, and worked as faithfully as has been done in some congrega- 
tions, the result would contribute very largely towards our support, 
and at the same time constitute a most valuable means of educating 
the children in the duty andi privilege of giving. 

The institution still needs very much: (1) A new barn, as the 
present one is not only inadequate for present uses, but is unsafe and 
a constant menace to valuable buildings on account of fire. (2) Re- 
pairs and improvements on Bronson Hall. (3) A cottage designed 
and equipped; for the care and training of small children under four 
years of age. Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin A. Osborne, 
Walter J. Smith, 
Frederick G. Glover. 
Committee. 

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE REV. WALTER J. SMITH, SUPER- 
INTENDENT THOMPSON ORPHANAGE AND 
TRAINING INSTITUTION 

To the Board of Managers — Greeting: 

Owing to a change in the time for the closing of the fiscal year, my 
report this year covers a period of only nine months, and it is 
worthy of note that the expenses are nearly as much as they were 
for the whole of the previous year; and yet on the first of this month, 
at the end of twelve months, we had considerably more on hand than 



136 Report of Thompson Oephaxage 

we did a year ago, showing that our people have been very generous 
in the support of their Orphanage. We begin the new year, there- 
fore, under favorable circumstances; but with the present high prices 
prevailing, our people will have to do even better things for us dur- 
ing the coming year, if we are to meet our expenses and have a re- 
spectable balance on hand with which to begin the new year. One 
means that would tend in a large measure to bring about this result 
would be to get every Sunday School in the State to make a regular 
contribution, monthly, if possible, for the blessed and Christlike 
work in which we are engaged. A resolution was passed in our Con- 
vention several years ago in regard to this matter, and we hope it 
miay yet be generally carried out. Another practical means of sup- 
port would be the organization of Orphanage guilds in all of our 
parishes. 

I am thankful to say that during the period covered by this report 
we had very little sickness in the institution. 

Our matrons remain the same as before, with the exception of 
Mrs. Mary C. Winter, of Winsted, Conn., who is capably taking care 
of Thompson Hall in place of Mrs. Poague, who reluctantly gave up 
her position in the summer on account of her mother's health. 

The school is in charge of Miss Mary Clark Smith, daughter of the 
Superintendent, and Miss Emilie M. Hester of Mount Carmel, S. C. 

Miss Peild is with us again in charge of the sewing room, and Miss 
Hill is back again as housekeeper at Thompson Hall. 

Some of our girls have attended the Graded School, and two have 
taken a course at King's Business College. 

During the nine months we have received seventeen children, ten 
of whom came from the Diocese of North Carolina, two from East 
Carolina, and five from the District of Asheville. 

Two of our boys have entered Christ School. Arden, one went to 
the new boys' school at Valle Crucis. and sixteen of our children have 
returned to their homes. The present number is seventy-four, forty- 
five being from the Diocese of North Carolina, eleven from East Caro- 
lina, and eighteen from the District of Asheville. 

Dr. William Myers Hunter continued to look after the health of the 
children till he went to Fort Oglethorpe in September to take a course 
of training before leaving for France wath Dr. Brenizer's Hospital 
Unit. For nine years he gave his services freely to the Orphanage, 
and I wish to express my grateful appreciation of all his kind atten- 
tion during that time. After his departure. Dr. C. G. Wingate kindly 
consented to take charge of the work. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the physicians and dentists of the 
city for professional services, and also the waterworks, the Standard 
Ice and Fuel Company, and the different railroads for their continued 
favors. 

Herewith I append my report as Treasurer.

writing, ask for such statement. 

Sec. VI. Any parish or mission neglecting for two successive years 
to pay the full amount of its annual premium shall be deprived of 
its right to participate and vote in the proceedings of the Convention 
of the Diocese, according to the Canons in that case made and pro-

sion has paid in full the said annual premiums for two successive 
years, when it shall be restored to all of its canonical rights in the 
Convention of the Diocese.

ally to the Convention. 

"All accounts having to do with receipts, expenditures, and in- 
vestments of all Church organizations, shall be audited at the close 
of the year by a certified public accountant: Provided, however, if 
the amount of the income for the year is less than $3,000, or, if a 
certified public accountant is not available, the audit may be made

subject-matter of the account. 

"The fiscal year shall begin January 1st. 

"The expense, if there be any, of auditing the account of the 
Diocesan Treasurer by a certified public accountant shall be paid by 
the Treasurer out of the Episcopal and Contingent Fund, upon requi- 
sition by the Chairman of the Finance Committee." 

Resolved. That Canon XXII, Section 1, of the Canons be amended 
as follows: At the end of the section add. "But note, that any Parish 
having twenty or more male members of the age of twenty-one years 
may adopt the rotating vestry system, and in such case shall elect

two years, and one-third to serve for three years, and thereafter shall 
•annually elect, from among its qualified members who have not

of March each year, to report to the Bishop of the Diocese, in such 
form as shall from time to time set forth by authority of the Dioc- 
esan Convention," and substitute therefor the following: "at the 



160 Amexdmea^ts 

beginning of January each year to prepare, upon the blank form 
adopted by the General Convention, a report for the year ending 
December 31st preceding, and deliver the same to the Bishop of the 
Diocese, on or before the 1st day of February. The report shall in- 
clude the following information." In last line of the section, for 
"April 1st" and "March 31st," read "January 1st and December 31st." 

Rule XVII. Nominations viva voce for all offices not otherwise 
providedi for shall be in order immediately after the appointment of 
hours for Convention on the afternoon of the first day of the session; 
but written nominations also, signed with the name of the proposer, 
may be handed to the Secretary. All names of persons so nominated 
for members of the Standing Committee, Deputies, and Supplemental 
Deputies to the General Convention, or Delegates and Alternate 
Delegates to the Provincial Synod, shall be reported to the Conven- 
tion by the Secretary on the afternoon of the second day's session in 
the form of a ticket on which they shall be printed in alphabetical 
order. After each list, of nominations there shall be left as many 
blank spaces as there are persons to be elected. These blanks may 
be used by any voter. The voter shall mark an X opposite the name 
of each person for whom he votes. On the first ballot these tickets 
only shall be used, and also in all subsequent ballots except when 
otherwise ordered by the Convention. On the back of the ticket shall 
be printed the names of the present members of the Committee, 
Deputation, or Delegation to be elected. If under any particular 
head more names are marked than there are places to be filled under 
that head, that part of such ticket shall not be counted; but such 
mistakes shall not invalidate the vote under the other heads on that 
ticket. If there is a failure to elect all the persons necessary on the 
first ballot, another ballot may be taken in the same manner. After 
the Deputies to the General Convention, or Delegates to the Provin- 
cial Synod, have been elected, the Alternates shall be elected by 
ballot from those already nominated for Deputies or Delegates, and 
from such other names as may be proposed, using the printed ballot 
if convenient. The collection of the ballots shall be called for by 
the presiding officer at such time as he may see fit, but the business 
of the Convention shall proceed while the ballots are being made out, 
and while they are being counted by the tellers. The report of the 
tellers shall be in order at any time when ready. 

Canon XI, Sec. 1. "The salary of the Bishop, of the Bishop Coad- 
jutor, or the Suffragan Bishop, shall be such as may from time to 
time be ordered and provided for by the Convention." 

Canon XI, Sec. 2, as follows: "A Suffragan Bishop may be per- 
mitted to perform Episcopal duty in neighboring Dioceses upon such 



Diocese of ^orth Carolina, 1918 161 

terms as may be agreed upon by the Bishop of this Diocese and the 
other Bishops in whose Dioceses the Suffragan Bishop performs 
such duty." 

Canon XI, present Sec. 2 to be numbered Sec. 3. 

Canon XIX, Section 1, add: "If at any time there be a Suffragan 
Bishop for work among the Negroes of the Diocese, such Suffragan, 
under the direction of the Bishop of the Diocese, shall be the official 
head of the Colored Convocation, and shall preside at all meetings 
of the same in the absence of the Bishop." 

Art. IX, Sec. 3, of the Constitution: At the end of the section add: 
''Provided further, that any Parish may by vote of a majority of the 
voters, as at present qualified, permit all members of the Parish of 
the age of twenty-one years, who shall have subscribed to the above 
declaration, to vote in parochial elections."
